Yick Oi Janet Ho grew up in Hong Kong and has had an interest in language, literature, and Chinese philosophy from a young age. She earned a master’s degree in education and worked as a curriculum developer and coordinator for schools with special-needs students.
She learned the Transcendental Meditation (TM) and TM-Sidhi programs in Hong Kong and became interested in studying the science of Maharishi’s technologies. She applied to the MA in Maharishi Vedic Science program at Maharishi International University and enrolled in 2012. After graduating from the master’s program, she practiced reading the Vedic literature and began the coursework for the PhD program in Maharishi Vedic Science.
Dr. Ho then decided to pursue the application of Maharishi Vedic Science to a specific field and enrolled in the MBA program. “The first course I took was with Vicki Alexander Herriott, and I was so impressed by how she incorporated Maharishi Vedic Science into the material,” she said. “So I poured my whole heart into it and I enjoyed it very much.”
Dr. Ho completed her PhD in management, graduating this June with an Outstanding Student Award. In her doctoral dissertation she explored the principles of management in the Dao De Jing in light of Maharishi Vedic Science. Her current research interests include discovering consciousness factors in ancient Chinese philosophies.
“I experienced a transformation through Maharishi’s knowledge and technologies and from understanding the Dao De Jing based on Maharishi Vedic Science,” said Dr. Ho. “That transformation was the best gift; it gave me a deep sense of satisfaction.”
During the past 10 years Dr. Ho translated the official website of the Transcendental Meditation organization into Chinese and has published over 200 articles in Chinese on spirituality, philosophy, and life management.
Dr. Ho now works as assistant professor of management, administrative director of the College of Business Administration, and director of the BA in Business Administration program for South Africa.
